Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Domain Path: Note that the domain path follows the same naming rules as the domain name, using only dashes and lowercase characters ("(.*)$|mi', $plugin_data, $domain_path );")
  • Description: If Twitter did it, so should we! Keep the description under 140 characters (currently 465 characters long)
  • Domain Path: The domain path should be prefixed with a forward slash character ("/(.*)$|mi', $plugin_data, $domain_path );")
